This is my federal electorate – Stirling – where the elected member is a Liberal, where is NBN, when is it planned?
I find it bizarre, considering this is probably one of the most populated areas of Perth …
Screenshot taken off the NBNco’s website today – the map shows planned, active and to-be done rollouts – you’ll see little pins with letter A’s and B’s on them. There is absolutely nothing in our area – zilcho.
Trying out my new Waldorf Streichfett, I wanted to see what it sounded like through my Small Stone phaser pedal – this is the result.
A quick funny story: When I purchased this, I walked into the music store and asked the guy at the counter for some Sloppy Fat – he looked at me strangely and responded – do you want fries with that! (Streichfett literally translates to sloppy fat in German)
I’m trying to make that breathy flute sound from War of The Worlds by Jeff Wayne.
So far I’ve played around with a Bass Station 2 to get the sound:
Osc 1: Sine Wave 4′
Osc 2: Sine Wave 8′
Noise: about 1/4 on
No Sub Osc
Filter about 60%
LFO Triangle about 3
Set Aftertouch to LFO Pitch about 3
Set Mod wheel to nearly bottom (off)
Set glide as required
use Mod wheel to get that vibrato when you hold the note
The problem I’m getting is the breathy sound isn’t good at all (Noise side) and I can’t seem to get the 2 Oscillators set to the right pitch. I’ve tried using a second synth via MIDI (Arturia Minibrute) with just Noise and playing with the envelopes on the filter and amp to get more of a reaction – but the noise sound is crap.
I’ve managed to get it sounding a bit closer by using the second Analog synth (Minibrute) and playing with the BP filter on the BS2. Here’s a sample:
This song is about the Stolen Generation, and the generation of children who were forced into adoption by the society of the 1960’s in Australia.
This phenomena touched my life too. For years I have lived my life knowing that I have a sister. This sister wasn’t a half-sister or a step sister, she was made from the same mother and father as me.
The Apology represents those who are the adopted and those who’s lives are affected. A single instrument was used to represent the sole life that had no choices. The individual who became the victim. The voice that can be heard through the pain numbed by time.
For the gear heads:
Novation Bass Station 2 was the only instrument used
